We love tofu. We love tofu festival. However, it felt unusually crowded this year. But hey, that's good for the 'fu!

The newest addition to this year's festival was the high amount of Malingering type victims. Why didn't you come Malingering??!!

The Lost Hawaiian
came and despite traffic, parking, high prices and being caught in a Skid Row riot when he got lost en route, he loved it.

We dealt with traffic and parking just fine. Our solution? Bike the Orange Line bikeway (and bikelanes), take the Red Line downtown, Bike to Little Tokyo, lock bike to fence.

Kinugoshi tofu? Momen tofu? Mikey HATES Everything visited the festival and explains.

Sha in LA had tofu tostadas twice. Yeah, we get those every year too.

We got full reading everything Fun With Your Food ate after driving 2.5 hours to get to the festival from Orange County.

Vegetarian Eats
also gave a run down of their favorites. And yes, the okonomiyaki was awesome. Dave Bullock took a picture of it.
